At a recent TED Talk, Sue Austin, a multimedia, performance, and installation artist, discussed her experience of living life using a wheelchair and about the exhilaration and freedom she experienced when she learned how to dive using a special chair.
Austin talks about the freedom to move in 360 degrees when underwater and describes how she came to her decision to dive: “When I began to dive in 2005, I realized scuba gear extends your range of activity in just the same way as a wheelchair does, but the associations attached to scuba gear are ones of excitement and adventure—completely different from people's responses to the wheelchair. So I thought, ‘I wonder what would happen if I put the two together?’”
You can hear Austin tell her inspirational story and see footage of her diving on the TED page.
